Alexandra Strada, Senior Exhibition 2010 An untitled photograph by Alexandra Strada

Strada’s photography captures the ways that personal belongings can serve as portraits of their owners. Having spent two years photographing at Clover Health Care, a nursing home in Auburn, her images of elderly subjects and their possessions convey such themes as death, loss, memory and adaptivity. “I have no overarching message,” she says — her images are “simply meditations on people.”
